How to Donate

Our vision is to think deeply, act justly and live wholeheartedly and make a positive lasting impact on the lives of people in Malakal, South Sudan. We have already designed a machine to automate the manual process of producing sesame oil for the people of South Sudan and we are ready to build and test a prototype of our machine with the goal of being ready for the October 2018 harvest.

We are in need of $12,000 by January 31, 2018 in order to purchase materials associated with building and assembling the machine, and to pay for shipping the machine from Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan – USA to Malakal, South Sudan.

The team would greatly appreciate the support of well-wishers, family, and friends towards the purchase of key components for the oil extractor. By working together and thinking deeply, acting justly and living wholeheartedly, we can be agents of renewal in the world! We would be honored for you to join us in this exciting mission by donating today!

Any extra funds donated will go toward a similar farm development project in Juba, South Sudan, through Life in Abundance, a faith-based community development organization. You can view their website here.
